As Brendan Gleeson might say, "It's fookin' grand!!"

I wasn't aware of this program until you posted about it. I've read the book(s) by Stephen King and enjoyed them. I'll have to go to On Demand and watch them.

I assume we're not here to talk about Janis Joplin's boyfriend.

It's worth it just to watch the scenes with Gleeson and his next door neighbor played to perfection by Holland Taylor (Charlie and Alan's mom on "Two and a Half Men). She's the best.

But be warned. It's also seriously disturbing, particularly the relationship between Mr. Mercedes and his mom...played to nauseating perfection by Kelly Lynch. Somehow Lynch makes this practitioner of so many humanly innapropriate behaviors almost likeable.

Thank you, Ike! I just caught up, watching every episode. BTW, the role of the next door neighbor, Ida, was originally to be Ann Margret, but she had a death in her family and had to turn it down.

I did an On Demand search for Mr. Mercedes but it came up with nothing. I guess I'll wait until the library gets the DVD to watch it.
